When I was growing up, I spent every summer on Cape Cod.
We spent days on the beach with the sand between our toes and evenings with my grandmother sharing the highs and lows of the day over tiny wooden bowls filled with Cheeto puff balls and glasses of ginger ale perched on wooden chairs with hooked rug covers.
My grandmother was fancy.
You would have loved her.
She wore red lipstick, too, and pearls. She drank Pepsi by the gallon, loved to dance, wore cat eye glasses and had the most amazing laugh.
She laughed and the world laughed along with her.
I still visit Cape Cod every summer.
Now it’s my children who eat Cheetos and drink ginger ale and spend days on the beach at the sand bar and nights catching fireflies and playing capture the flag.
And the chair covers from those long-ago conversations at the beach house?
They came to live with me.
I think it was the chair covers that started my love affair with hand hooked wool.
It’s timeless and classic and current and full of character and the one pillow every chair needs. And when I discovered the hooked wool pillows and rugs and chair covers at Chandler 4 Corners….
…it was like I was home.
When I saw all that hand hooked goodness, I sent them an email full of 27 exclamation points and smiley faces and told them how amazing they were and that I couldn’t go another day without one of their pillows and could I pretty please with sprinkles on top feature them on the blog.
You have to see their pillow selection.
Like this USA pillow.
Hello Fourth of July.
They also have amazing hand hooked wool rugs.
This one makes me want to sing the national anthem and salute.
Stars and stripes forever.
Or this weather vane sloop foot stool.
And see how the hooking looks like waves?
It’s like a little piece of Cape Cod.
In addition to hooked wool products, they also have a new line of canvas pillows.
I love this red rubber boot canvas pillow.
You can see the rest of the canvas pillow selection….here.
And of course they have chair pads.
Glorious, wonderful, whimsical chair pads.
That go perfectly with Cheetos and ginger ale and of course,
….really, really, really good conversation. 🙂
PS I cannot thank Chandler 4 Corners for sending me the beautiful hand hooked wool pillow and sponsoring this post (please know that all opinions are totally mine/see my disclosure page for more information).
It is an absolute honor to partner with a company with such amazing products.
I’m totally hooked on you. 🙂
